I apologize for the probably ignorant question, but does anyone know how wide these run? I don’t know specifically how wide, I just know my foot is wide.
Its been my experience in the footwear industry that running shoes typically will be in the “D” width range, which is consider standard width for most shoes. Many brands use slightly different lasts to differentiate their fit characteristics. Wider width shoes especially running are rare. Perhaps New Balance being the more commercially available. They specialize in widths. Many people fit shoes to length which can be wrong. In your case fit the width first and allow some break in. If you wear a 11 wide for example, consider an 11.5 medium. The widest part of the 11.5 might be just what the doctor ordered for your width.
If you are looking for a pure running shoe, avoid Nike they are no longer really considered brand in specialty area. Instead look for Brooks, Saucony, New balance, Hoka one one, adidas and Mizuno
I’ve been running in Zealot’s for a couple of years. They’re a great neutral running shoe. For me, they sit in between the Triumph ISO and Kinvara. This is a good enough price for me to stock up on another pair. They’re due to be upgraded in the next couple of months.
These run a * little * wider than traditional running shoes. Nike and Brooks seem narrow to me. Saucony seem to run a little wider. I size up half size.
I’ve got a 10EE foot—like a duck. Typically I buy New Balance in Wide or Saucony 1 full size up. I avoid Nike, Asics, and Mizuno–all very narrow shoes, but I’ve had decent fit with Brooks at a 1/2 size up (but my last pair of Brooks was 2 years ago, so YMMV).
I’m not criticizing anything about any shoes except the fit—if you can jam your hoof in them and be comfy, go for it.
